I took a knee right about my left testicle today. There is a lot of swelling right above the left testicle. The swollen spot and testicle is very sore to touch.

Ice it off, but you should deff see a doctor because trauma to the testicle can cause severe problems if not checked.

NEVER ice your genitals! Go to the hospital immediately, you have trauma and it needs to be addressed. Sie7e is correct that you must see a doctor because trauma needs to be treated immediately to prevent permanent damage.
